State Auditor Faber: Oak Hills' reporting "serves as the standard for clean, accountable government."


Ohio Auditor of State Keith Faber announced that the Oak Hills Local School District is being awarded the Award with Distinction for Financial Reporting for the most recent annual audit. "Your exemplary reporting serves as the standard for clean, accountable government, representing the highest level of service to your community," Mr. Faber said.

Board of Education President Paul Cooper accepted the award on behalf of the district. “Our district strives to continue to be a strong steward of our community’s resources through ongoing, transparent communication and accurate record keeping," Mr. Cooper said. “Receiving state-level accolades of this magnitude is truly humbling and we are grateful for Auditor Faber’s recognition."

More than 85% of all Hamilton County school districts assess a higher tax rate than the Oak Hills Local School District. In OHLSD, 72% of funding goes directly to student instruction, above the state average of 68%. Since the last operating levy in 2013, the district has taken more than 40 actions to preserve its cash balance. The public may view these actions at the district’s website, ohlsd.us.
